But traveling overseas to race...that's what I train for. To race against other girls I don't get to compete against. So you have a feeling of the unknown which is a bit scary and gets the nerves going. But it is a longish day and anything can happen - right?So every couple of days or so I log onto the Philippines official site (I am excited - can you tell??). They have been extremely helpful with arranging my accommodation etc. So there I was scrolling down the site yesterday afternoon and there I saw it - "NO BIKES ON CEBU AIRLINES" from Manila to Naga. HELP!!!
Now I was warned a long time ago by doc, that when I fly...fly with your bike - else I may be running the 90k. Thing is I could not get a flight with Philippines air - fully booked. So I am travelling from KL - Manila - Naga with Cebu Air. No problem from KL to Manila (I hope) but since the flight from Manila to Naga is a twin prop, George cannot come on :(
What to do?? Send him on a flight I wasn't going on?? I can't do that to George - he is too young to travel alone - anything could happen! So I threw out a bunch of SOS emails to every contact in Philippines and elsewhere who I know is going to CamSurs.
People are so nice and helpful. I now have options and I know George will be safe. He will be travelling by road but will be taken care of. I hope we will be able to get together on Thursday and go have a little wee ride on the bike course...can't wait!!!
